Robinson seeks Change of Luck in Atlanta

Concord, NC (March 6, 2002) ­ A picture paints a thousand words. This was clearly demonstrated by the expression on Shawna Robinson¹s face last weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

It was a picture of disappointment and frustration stemming from the ill handling car that retired the No. 49 BAM Racing Dodge early. Robinson and the team will put that race behind them and concentrate on the future.

³We have the right chemistry and work well together as a team,² said Robinson. ³Many teams struggle all year to get what we have at the BAM Racing team. We have really concentrated on our Cup program and I have to say I am very proud of what the BAM Racing team has accomplished in a short period of time. We really have talent on this team, and we want to win.²

This will be Robinson¹s first start in a Winston Cup car at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and her third race of the season. Robinson and the BAM Racing team tested at Atlanta last week and feel they have a very good car for this race. Robinson hopes the support of her family and friends will bring the No. 49 BAM Racing Dodge better luck this weekend.

³Atlanta is one of my favorite tracks and I feel confident we can make it work to our benefit. It¹s always exciting to race here and I have a very good comfort level here and adapt to the racetrack very easily. This is one track I can not wait to get to.²

Bud Pole qualifying for the MBNA America 500 will take place Friday, March 8th, at 3:05 p.m. EST. The event will take place on Sunday, March 10th, at 1:00 p.m. EST for 500 miles of tough racing. Fox and PRN will broadcast the event live.
